Truth has become an important, operative word for me of-recent...

I was in D.C. this past weekend for a family Bar Mitzvah and saw a stunning collection of images of African Americans, incl. this iconic image of Sojourner Truth...but look at her hands! They are wide and strong and bespeak a truthfulness, an unfathomable truthfulness in experience.

have not gotten to reading Benjamin, but making my way through a collection of Orwell essays, where he writes truth.

That's still a long way off, and since the only regular glimpse we can get of the construction comes from the Standard Hotel's website, we're left craving more. More, damn it! Luckily, our call for all-High-Line-all-the-time has been answered. Coming at you like a rusted b'tch scorned is the High Line Blog and the High Line Facebook page.
